now. you know what was a really bad time? the george w. bush presidency was a really bad time. and not just if you were a liberal and you disagreed with george w. bush, just if you were an american, the george w. bush presidency, the bush/cheney years were bad years for us as a country. the national ubunemployment rate went from a little over 4% when he took office to nearly 8% by the time he left. we went from a budget surplus of more than $200 billion to a budget deficit of more than a trillion dollars. after decades of u.s. household income climbing during the 1980s and 1990s, it fell off a cliff in the bush years. after poverty declined in the 1980s and declined in the 1990s, in the bush years, it went up. by the time he left office, 6 million more americans were added to the rolls of americans who didn't have health insurance. wall street in the bush years collapsed. the country was plunged into the worst depression since the great depression in the 1930s. the bush/cheney years were a disaster. they were also a series of embarrassments. remember when they were going to bu
of the united states shooting a guy in the face. there's a reason george w. bush left office in january 2009 with the lowest approval rating for an outgoing president since galt started asking that question back in the 1930s. and frankly, the vice president, dick cheney, would have killed to get numbers that high. his approval rating was 13% when he left office. part of the headwind that john mccain had running in 2008, trying to run as a republican after george w. bush and dick janney was george w. bush and dick cheney. the country was happy to see them go for understandable reasons. four years after the bush/cheney administration, the new republican party nominee, mitt romney, has made precisely zero public appearanced with george w. bush or dick cheney. this is still the most interesting thing in american politics. the reconstruction of the republican party post-george w. bush and post-dick cheney is as yet incomplete and still the most interesting thing to watch. hot is the new republican party going to be after that? what is the new republican party leadership going to be after them? al
minnesota governor tim pa-- pa-- tim pawlenty. in addition to governor snoozy, there's george w. bush's budget director, rob portman, and then what the "times" refers to as the two dark horse choices, paul ryan, the guy who became nationally famous when he suggested taking away medicare from old people and giving them coupons instead, and also louisiana governor bobby jindal. yesterday, he joins bobby jindal in louisiana for fund-raisers. the beltway press describing him as buzzed about as one of romney's most visible supporters and as a vp short lister. >> i'm bobby jindal, governor of louisiana. >> according to the washington post, bobby jindal's stock is on the rise. the paper extolling the many conservative virtues that make him a possible vice presidential choice, like for example, criticizing president obama. republican voters love that. and fighting with democrats on tv. that's a must. also, he is not old. mossel tav. and there's the rolling back of medical care for the poor and uninsured in his state. maybe that could cancel out romney care in massachusetts? in fact, it would
presidential election, george h.w. bush released 14 years of his tax returns going back to 1973. there's no exact number of years that is the standard. but when mitt romney says the president is that you don't have to release much in the way of tax returns, just a couple years will do it, that's not true. the obama campaign released this chart this week showing how many years worth of tax returns the last four presidents released as they campaigned for office. they're putting this out because they think mr. romney has been wrong when he asserted he's following precedent. he released eight years. george w. bush released ten. clinton released 12 years. poppy bush released 14 years. then they added on another guy, the last blue column, that is george romney, who is just a candidate for president. he of course never became president, but he is mitt romney's dad. so what's normal in presidential politics is to release many years of your tax returns. the romney campaign if they cont wanted to could come back and say all those people who became president and my dad released more than five yea
lie. >> and the big panel weighs in on george w. bush's jaw-dropping new interview. >> eight years was awesome. and you know, i was famous and i was powerful. >> good to have you with us. thanks for watching. another day, another new plan of attack for the romney campaign. yesterday, it was the dart board mentality. today, it's the kitchen sink approach. >> his priority is not creating jobs for you. his priority is trying to keep his own job, and that's why he's going to lose it. he's out of touch, out of ideas, out of excuses. that's why in november we have to get him out of office. he divides us. he tried to diminish those who have been successful in one walk of life or another. it's simply wrong. >> to recap, president obama cares about his own job and not yours. he's out of touch and out of excuses. and he's a president who is just dividing america and tearing americans apart. you know, gone are the days when mitt romney would say something nice about president obama, that he's a nice guy. >> i think he's a nice person. i just don't think we can afford him any longer. >> conser
the george w. bush administration took office in 2001, the altair voyager was caed the condoleezza rice. dr. rice was a long time board member of chevron when george w. bush hired her to be the national security adviser. she had a tanker named after her. yeah, the former oil executive president picked the ceo of halliburton to be vice president and the board member of a chevron who had a tanker named after her to be national security advicer. it was a different time. pity poor chevron because when the bush administration took office, chevron faced the prospect of having one of its oil tankers floating around the middle east or off the coast of nigeria or something with the american national security adviser's name painted in big letters on the side of their tanker. that's awkward. that was awkward even before iraq. so chevron decided in 2001 they would change the name of the condoleezza rice. it would no longer be the condoleezza rice, it would instead being the altair voyager, which is the name of a star, a noncontroversial star. now the woman who once had her name painted or so it would s
extreme speech and it really hurt george h.w. bush get re-elected that year. so sarah palin's not very popular in this country, especially with certain constituencies that they are trying to woo. mitt romney is in israel trying to get jewish votes in the united states. obama got 78% of jews the last time, in large part because sarah palin was on the ticket. so if he wants those jewish votes in ohio and florida, mitt romney wants to move away from sarah palin. on the other hand, if he moves too far away, he alienates the palin supporters in states like iowa that he's going to need for his base. >> sure. >> so he's in a tough spot on palin. >> very difficult spot there. does liz chainy do damage to her credibility saying that sarah palin is more qualified than barack obama and joe biden combined? i don't know many republicans that will honestly say that. >> that was kind of over the top. she was trying to clean up for her old man and show her loyalty to sarah palin and the tea party folks. they should not be underestimated. the most vivid demonstration of the power of the tea party was a
's the equiv lnlt of 2004, of democrats saying we're going to bring up george w. bush's alcoholism and the fact until the age of 40, he really didn't have any purpose in his life. well, that might have been relevant for some democrats, you might have wanted to dwell on that. but actually, by that point, he had invaded two countries. he had a record as president. if you want to go out and dislike this president, if you feel negative about him, there are plenty of things to grab on to. what does it do for people who are the gettable voters, the swing voters, the independent voters. they think this is completely off topic. go down this rabbit hole for the republicans. it won't take them any closer to landing a blow on a president, a sitting president they're going for, not a new guy running for nomination. >> yeah, bob shrum, when a campaign decides to go heavily negative in july, what does it tell you about the campaign? >> this is, in 2004, we never brought up the fact that george w. bush had been an alcoholic until 40. it would have hurt us, we knew it would have hurt us. when the stuff about h

attempts to reach out to the hispanic community. on policy, george w. bush advocated for comprehensive immigration reform. he reached out to democrats like ted kennedy to reach out the broken immigration system in a bipartisan way. he failed, of course, but at least he tried on the policy. and on politics the bush team did so much outreach to the hispanic community that he managed to increase his share of the hispanic vote from 2000 to 2004 when he was dramatically less popular overall. george w. bush got 42% of the hispanic vote in 2004. mitt romney on the other hands, in terms of policy, he's trying to appeal to the public by proposing his immigration policy. he calls it self deportation. he's promising to follow the lead of arizona, of all places, for national immigration law. that sort of outreach has earned him an appeal with hispanic voters that is, look at that, 40 points below president obama. he's even down 18 points from what george w. bush did with hispanic voters. the romney campaign is trying to move the hispanic voters. want to know how? they released this ad yesterday. i

by presidents like bill clinton and ronald reagan. >> and george w. bush. we've seen this pandering before. george w. bush said he would move the embassy to jerusalem on the day he was inaugurated. the minute he was in office, he reversed that and extended the same as every other president. if we moved our embassy to tel aviv, we would be abandoning in affect, 40 years of u.s. foreign policy. that is not going to happen. i'm sure president romney would do no such thing no way. >> it's an interesting debate. this is not going to be the end of it. hussein ibish. thank you so much for joining us inside 9inside "the war room"." >> democrats deliver on a long-overdue promise to the lgbt community. plus the 1992 presidential debate is one for the history books. the question is why hasn't history repeated itself? and then later dick cheney takes aim at one of his own. we don't mean a hunting buddy. find out who should take cover. you're in "the war room," and we'll be right back. >>oh really? >>tax cuts don't create jobs. the golden years as the conservatives call them, we had the highest tax rat
, well i did it for ford in '76, but then again for george w. bush in 2000. i had a couple calls from prominent politicians who would say it would help me in my race back home if i was on the list. you are on the list. then somebody could leak the fact that they were on the list. but that was the big list. it was easy to get on the big list. the tough part is the small list. the one that is really under active consideration. and the test to get on the small list has to be is this person capable of being president of the united states. that's usually a very, very short list. >> what about the other considerations? can you bring a state? can you -- reach out to a specific demographic, woman, hispanic? >> those are important issues. but they should never be allowed to override the first proposition. and i think that, that was one of the problems mccain had. i like governor palin. i have met her the i know her. she is an attractive candidate. but based on her background she had only been governor for two years. i don't think she passed that test. >> being ready? >> being ready to take ove

to a similar cover in 1987 of george w. bush. the media said he was worried he wouldn't be able to get enough sleep. >>> an israel newspaper is reporting president obama's national security adviser, thomas donelan, has briefed the prime minister on a u.s. contingency plan to attack iran if diplomacy is unable to stop the country's nuclear program. the article sourced a senior u.s. official speaking on the condition of anonymity. that's the power of the presidency. they don't let romney get all the headlines in israel. >>> here at home, democrats remain critical of romney's performance abroad, specifically his rocky start in london where the republican candidate publicly voiced concerns over the uk's ability to handle the summer olympics you see here on nbc. >> mitt romney wondered aloud whether london was ready for the olympics, and i think it's clear that voters in this country wonder aloud whether mitt romney is ready for the world. and i think the world is not yet ready for mitt romney. i'm happy david cameron had the last word because i thought it was embarrassing for our country. >> on t
last three presidents would be mitt romney, barack obama and george w. bush, three men who personally have very little love for politics, very little love for the sport of it all, very little love or understanding of the grand sweep of history, unlike say a bill clinton or a ronald reagan or an fdr. there just doesn't seem to be the joy in these guys either on the campaign trail or when they're governing. they seem to be -- well, at least the two that are running this time technocrats. >> they're competitive without being cheerful. i any what mark just said is exactly right, that politicians get in trouble when they act as though they're pundits or color commentators. you think about obama -- wandered into the truth but that editorial meeting in washington state in 2008 when he said reagan was transformative but clinton wasn't. >> nevada. >> reno. >> however true that might be, it was the wrong way to say it. >> you can't say it as a presidential candidate. >> the thing that really struck me about looking at romney in london was his lack of agility. it was this incredibly stiff presen

at running mates and teams, is it al gore and clinton, is it cheney and george w. bush? who in the past, is it george herbert walker bush and ronald reagan? what's your role model for what a good vice president should be. is it joe biden? >> i haven't really given that a lot of thought or studied the dynamic or synergies between the vice president and the president in years gone past. i would want to give that some thought and give you a more thoughtful answer but just off the cuff, i would say if you look at the relationship that ronald reagan had with george bush, h.w. bush, that seemed to be a healthy, dynamic and constructive relationship. i'm sure there are others. but just off the cuff, that would be one that would be worth further review and study. seems they had a good relationship and good partnership. >> people are talking about senator portman, one of your colleagues, because of ohio and the importance of ohio. clearly minnesota is not considered a swing state here. the last time it actually voted for a republican -- >> 1972 is the answer. it's the longest unbroken streak of
